    Well it showed up today. Mounted it on the Gehl to see what it looks like on it.
    Now have to wait for the snow to come

    Wings are manual moveable In the photo set at 45* 8'11'' wide Fold them in for a 7.5 box and open them up for 9.6 straight blade.

    If it works I may add hydro rams to the wings so can move them from in the cab.

    There isn't much depth when its in box mode I was thinking I may add another foot to the wings. But I'll wait till the first snow to see how it does.

    What are your first impressions of the plow as far as build quality and function?

    Look like it is built well has grease fittings.

    I don't like the way you apply down pressure to the plow and where ( I'm going fix that)

    Looks tall on the skid.

    Does need a taller cutting edge I'll may add a 5/8x 8''.

    The front bottom corner of the wings need to be more rounded , so when it hits a curb will ride up on it. I'll fix that to

    I'm happy with what I pick since I didn't see it before I bought it.
    For $2900 well worth that

    Im going add a 4 way valve and put rams on the wings .

    I will know more once it starts snowing if I made right choice.
